Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

This is a business- 2- business (B2B) financial services company. Their primary audience will be other business, corporations and retail operations.

Their market, include business buyers are using more rational thought when selecting a product or service for their company. They are motivated by saving money, increasing productivity or raising profitability.

• B2B buyers are rational decision makers (or a committee of rational decision makers) who are not swayed by emotional factors such as "Pretty" however, they are looking to work with companies who look credible.
• B2B purchases are all about the relationship between the individual sales rep and the buyer; if the B2B brand means anything, it is created by the brand promise, reinforced and enhanced by the sales rep.

Companies that our client is interested in targeting are;
Small/ medium sized businesses who require an outsourced sales / marketing solution, financing for their business growth, point of purchase transaction equipment or HR benefits...

We really like the idea of a simplified Welsh Dragon as used on the One pound British coin. Remember that we are trying to create a higher-end, sophisticated look and feel for this company. I can't say this enough.

Typography is really, really important. Please use unique, interesting fonts. Please do not use any clip art in the logo.

Verb Strategy & Creative will own the logo 100% with no usage by anyone else.

Please refer to the full creative brief attached to this project.
